Golden’s Industrial Past and School of Mines Growth Plans

September 3, 2018

Golden Super Cruise - Golden Colorado

Dave Powers got some nice photos downtown during Saturday’s Golden Super Cruise.  See them on our Facebook page.


Golden Pressed and Fire Brick Company - Golden Colorado

In honor of Labor Day, here is a listing of Golden’s principal industries from the January 1, 1903 Golden Transcript, along with their monthly payrolls.

Golden Smelting Works – $6,000
Coors Brewery – $5,200
Golden Fire and Pressed Brick Works – $4,000
Colorado and Southern Railway – $3,500
Clay mines – $2,500

Bet you didn’t realize Golden had so much heavy industry!  We’ve also had coal mines, a paper mill, grist mills, a pottery, a bone fertilizer plant, quartz crusher, and an electrical power plant.  You can learn all about them in the old Transcripts.

The Golden Transcript (originally called the Colorado Transcript) has been publishing since 1866. The Golden History Museum has been working on digitizing the old issues, and they’re currently up to June of 1948. You’ll find old Transcripts online at coloradohistoricnewspapers.org.  You can contribute to the cost of the digitizing project with a donation to the Golden History Museum.


Mines Events Tomorrow (Tues., Sept 4th)

Colorado School of Mines Residence Hall - Golden CO

Tomorrow morning at 10:30, the School of Mines will break ground on their new 249-bed residence hall on Jackson Street, across the street from Safeway.  Learn more….

Tomorrow evening (5:30-7PM), the School of Mines will hold their final Open House to present the draft of Mines Master Plan. Please join us to see how the campus will evolve over the coming years. Ben H. Parker Student Center, 1200 16th Street (map) Ballroom C.


Enjoy this bonus weekend day!  Remember–no mail delivery and the library is closed today for the holiday…but isn’t it worth it?
